Fashion First November 2020 WIDE LEG PANTS
Thursday, November 5, 2020
I’m just going to come right out and say it: skinny jeans are not my first choice for most body shapes nor are they my first choice from my own closet these days. No matter how you feel about the classic denim, there’s no denying that looser trouser shapes are the reigning silhouette as far as jeans and pants go and my own closet is proof of this. Throughout 2020, designers have announced flares and bootcut jeans are on the rise, and, well, we’re adding another of these non-skinny styles to the top of our lists: high-rise wide-leg pants.
I recently did a closet evaluation and in the process realized that nearly all the pants and jeans I haven’t worn were skinny and snug fits. I owned multiple pairs at one point but have since found myself drawn more and more to relaxed pant silhouettes, and fashion designers are in complete agreement with me. There’s something undeniably cool about voluminous, wide-leg pants and, not to mention, they make more sense than ever this year seeing as comfort has become our top priority when getting dressed. The relaxed but still polished trousers may just be the answer avoiding another sweatpants slump.
I have a strong feeling that once you see just how chic the fashion world is making wide-leg pants look, you’re going to agree with me! Enjoy living life with Style & Flair…with Panache!!!
